In Praise of Cover Songs
I happened to hear a cover song
on the radio the other day,
by some band the couldn’t write a hit,
or their instruments manage to play.
My first thought was to just shake my head,
and wish they had just left it alone,

Some cold forge words to make metal musings,
hammering, stammering then scribblings.
Pounding prose, forming phrases in viscous verse,
many manner of makers, none for the worse.

Some lift language right from the curb,
well-slung slang meant not to disturb.
Writers sling collected cliches on their...Read More

Attuned the labyrinths till full,
Amidst the harmony compare,
Blessed miracle, a pocketful,
Righteous heart, commit to prayer.

We stand as one to justify,
Attuned the labyrinths till full,
Admittedly, will pacify,
Rambunctiousness stills each mouthful.

We stead ourselves a sweet spoonful,
That cleanse the souls its rightful claim,

Surfing in the Void
Are you muse listening?

Can you hear
the Cosmic mechanics
quantum singing?

The nebular orchestral oscillations
are photon vibrating

Waves upon waves
of pure starlight expanding harmoniously

Music of the Spheres
ring Galactic in my ears

As I silver surf in the Void,
seeking the golden 
event horizon
of Infinity

The symphonic stillness when only two hearts in winter are aglow.
Like walking fireplaces in the glistening snow.

I see our pizza oven in the kitchen baking the pizza you made.
The aroma of garlic, sausage and oregano, a scented cascade.

Christmas reaches for my very soul
With long and red and green desiring arms,
It cries, in the silent night of my savior’s love,
Before His last gift of fulfilled Psalms.

Christmas music rings down the highways,
Melodic, under a glorious moon,
And I treasure its...Read More

In the absence of complication,

where an aubade of dawn creates waves of serenity.

May supreme Force

How is whiteness
like straightness?
she asked

And how is maleness
like left-brain dominance?
he responded.

It seems, 
to usually curious
and always ancient
right with left dipolar ecofeminist Us,

Contracts are secular agreements
designed to improve mutual odds
of losing less value

Formerly, dear,
my books like velvet-dressed
put aside, perfectly straight.

Last light flickers
dusk bids, “God bless,”

as I gently turn on the night,
the antique brass polished,

and symphonic-lettering hooks
harmonize in the gentler time
before the internet.

Roses flourish in crystal vase,
cranberries and ivy vines contemplate
the corpulent beauty...Read More

Whispering apricot beams shine upon frilly sheers,
lazy shadows dance in daffodil dawn colors,

silently flowing on smooth brush stroke walls

rhythmically exhaling beneath satin sheets
symphonic…bringing a grin to the sunrise,
blushing clouds hide behind a...Read More

The orchestra strains to be symphonic --- a bee in a tin box.
Cigar smoke thunders, molecules of sound wilt
only to be dialed up through brass lungs.
The combo is quaintly upholstered, a classic sports car
driven by Disney. Outmoded refrains gurgle.

Morning dew melodies whispering soft,

is so amusing
as warm caring
entirely uncold nondespairing

Yet, curiosity
compels cooperative courage,
while competitions in courage
devour curiosity.

is curious communication
more right-brain prominent
than courageous left-brain dominant,

But, competitive solo performance
is not amusing,
not cooperative,
not a warm inviting environment

Your festal face heavens afterglow.
